It is always good news to find out that we, as a village, can get money for village facilities without digging into our own pockets and your Parish Council is always looking to find such funding. Recently we were partially successful in receiving grant funding towards the Orpen Hall (see recent committee minutes on our website) and any initiative to increase available funding must be welcome.
Well A petition has been raised on the Government petition website in support of specific funding from the Lottery for Village Halls and Community Buildings. Please follow this link http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/VillageHeart/#detail to the Prime Ministers website – there is further information on the petition and an opportunity for you to sign. I hope you’ll be able to support this by signing up.
If you haven’t signed a government petition before, they ask for your name, address and email address although the address and email are not published.
